NBC is back!

Yay! We will have our local NBC affliate back on air soon, after almost a month off due to contract negotiations (or fighting, if you will). This makes me happy :)

Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the changing of the temperature from Indian Summer to the crispness of Fall. The leaves change color and start to fall to the ground, there is a crunch of leaves when you walk, and the air starts to cool.

Fall has sped past me this year - I haven't taken the time to enjoy it, and snow is starting to threaten. I need to take some time this weekend to enjoy the little bit of Fall left before Winter takes over completely.

Musical Weekend

I had a very musical weekend. Friday night I met up with some friends to see Scythian, one of the headliners from the 2008 Dayton Celtic Festival. They were great this year on the big stage, playing to a massive crowd, so I wondered about their ability to translate to a smaller, more intimate crowd. I didn't need to worry, because they were great! They guys were lots of fun, interacting with the crowd both before and after their sets. They put on a very entertaining show.

Saturday night I went to Covington to meet up with my sister to see her boyfriend play in the house band at a restaurant in the Main Strasse area called Dee Felice. The restaurant is New Orlean's themed, and the band plays big band and jazz music, as well as a few New Orlean's staples. My sister's boyfriend was the youngest guy in the band by at least 40 years. We had a great time listening to the band and eating great food. I had the Blackend Sea Scallops, which were wonderful and a nice glass of red wine to complement the meal.

Iced Coffee Weather?

Is it iced coffee weather where you live?

Sadly, when I tried out my old zip in Prague, I got an "Eh?". Apparently this only works for US zip codes.

In my neck of the woods, it is a definite "NO". I quite agree.
